the whole land of usa was taken from the indians (like the land of any country in the world probably?), what are u talking about. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27903069
I get what you're saying: might makes right.
fact is - the things that you think that you "know" are false and you have no idea on this subject. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27903069
The industrial revolution brought about the mass use of machinery in manufacturing. One of the things they first used to grease the machines? Whale oil. Sperm whales were especially prized for their spermaceti. Luckily enough petroleum oil was around to eventually replace the diminishing whales. One of the richest parts of the world for that petro oil? The mideast. Who controlled the mideast late 19th century/early 20th century? The Ottomans.
After WWI, who controlled the mideast? The British and Americans. There's your reason for WWI.
Did you know Standard Oil signed a contract with the Saudis in the 1930s, to buy their oil forever at $2/barrel? Forever. Including today. Think of the profits. With the UK/US now in control of the mideast, what magically happens? Return of Israel. For 2,000 years the Hebrews had been wandering the earth without a home, and by sheer coincidence they get their old country back right after oil becomes the #1 resource commodity on the planet. Curious timing.
Of course, to get Israel back on the map, they'd need a very good reason to "crush the natives." Ever wonder why western financiers and industrialists lined up to fund the Hitler? I mean, a nice world war (again) is a pretty good payoff in the profit column, especially if you're in the business of selling steel, clothing or medical supplies. It's too bad a great number of families were to lose their sons, but oh the profits to be made. Of course, those steel/cotton/morphine profits were peanuts compared to the oil windfall coming out of the mideast. Wars only last a few years.... oil's forever.
Now if I were making a fortune from owning a bar, the last thing I'd want to do is hang around there every night throwing out the trouble makers. I'd hire a bouncer to do that for me so I could spend my time suntanning on a yacht and nailing hot chicks. Balfour Declaration = bouncer application form. I need a bouncer on site to protect my investment. Should my bar ever run out of booze, I'll no longer need the bouncer. But until that time, it's in my best interest that the bouncer get a little exercise now and then so that he stays sharp and in shape.
I fund Israel billions of dollars a year to keep her fit and ready for action at any time. Israel is my bouncer. I fund Hamas and everyone else around Israel to be her sparing partners. These billions I'm spending to keep everyone in F-15s, patrol boats, mines, missiles, rifles, CAT D9s, etc., are a fraction of my profits from the oil business. If-when the oil runs out, I won't need Israel anymore. I'll cut off the money going to her, and let her sink or swim on her own.
If you really have to hate someone, at least know who your enemy is.
